She enjoys her business and is convinced that her hard work will help others. Betty will be able to replace the roof of her parents’ house. Afterwards, she will continue with the construction of the second floor of her house so that her daughter will be comfortable and have a better quality of life.


This is her first loan with MFP. Betty says that she trusts the organization and is confident that she will complete all of her payments on time because she wants to receive further assistance.
